Disruptive Intelligent Systems to smash $US1 trillion mark by 2019

Disruptive Intelligent Systems to smash $US1 trillion mark by 2019

The deployment of billions of advanced systems across major industries over the next five years will be critical to enabling the vision around intelligent systems.

The deployment of billions of advanced systems across major industries over the next five years will be critical to enabling the vision around intelligent systems.

New IDC research suggests the market for intelligent systems, defined by microprocessors, connectivity, and high-level operating systems/UI in systems excluding PCs, phones, servers, and tablets, will grow from 1.4 billion units and $US755 billion in revenue this year to over 2.2 billion units and more than $US1 trillion in revenue by 2019.

"Intelligent systems continue to play a critical role in disrupting traditional industries as connectivity, sensors, and HW SW intelligence enables the ability to drive more value for applications and data," says Mario Morales, vice-president of Enabling Technologies and Semiconductors research group, IDC.

"The value chain for the embedded market is broad and fragmented across a large set of industries that span decades of development and commercialisation.

“Solving business-specific challenges across each industry with technology and data integration will ultimately dictate the cadence of adoption and help crystallise the opportunity over the next five years."

In 2019, IDC reports that intelligent systems will represent over one fourth of a total available market (TAM) of more than 8.5 billion systems in the combined intelligent and embedded systems market.

Among the top-growing segments are driver management and fuel management systems in the transportation sector, smart wearables and smart home lighting systems in the consumer sector, digital pathology and virtual metrology systems in the healthcare sector, and industry-specific gateway products in the industrial sector.

For this forecast update, IDC expanded the embedded and intelligent systems and microprocessor coverage to include 263 system segments, in areas such as energy, smart building, smart home, transportation, and wearables to provide more insight on the technology adoption of each market.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
